We're excited to be launching Ancient Invocations—our new line of hand-cut, Sanskrit necklaces and bracelets available in both brass and sterling silver. Choose from devika (goddess), ananda (bliss), anuraga (love), prana (life force), sat-chit-ananda (existence-consciousness-bliss) or shanti (peace), and carry your favourite mantra(s) with you everywhere you go.


Devika means "little goddess," derived from the Sanskrit "devi" (goddess) and "ka" (little). Similarly, Saraswati is derived from the words "sara" (essence) and "swa" (self), together forming "the essence of self."

"Sweet Goddess, born of a blinding light and a changing wind, now don't be modest, you know who you are and where you've been." – Bob Dylan

Go on, channel your inner goddess.

Ananda stands for bliss or happiness, and is associated with the blissful balance experienced within your own heart. While bliss may manifest itself in outward joy and happiness, it can also be internal through your own quiet sense of calm, your own gentle sense of bliss.

"Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls." – Joseph Campbell         

Ananda Bracelet in Sterling Silver


Anuraga, or "love," is more than just a feeling: it's a way of being. It's the outward expression of your deepest, purest self. Through practicing kindness, compassion, understanding and patience, we practice love. 

"All you need is love. Love is all you need." – John Lennon and Paul McCartney

Prana is the Sanskrit word for "life force," which is the energy that creates, protects and destroys. Through prana, we connect to the cosmic energy and strength manifest in all elements of the universe.

Existence, consciousness and bliss are embodied in this ancient Sanskrit mantra illuminating the path to enlightenment. Sat-Chit-Ananda stands for a sublimely blissful experience of boundless, pure consciousness—a glimpse and connection to the ultimate reality.

Shanti, or "peace," goes beyond the surface meaning of the word and refers to the inner peace created and nourished through a spiritual life and dedicated spiritual practice. True peace takes persistence and patience. The practitioner who understands and lives the concept of shanti can maintain peace even in the midst of utter chaos. 

"Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without." – Buddha
